- Place four red and two yellow players in one grid and the remaining two yellow players in the other grid.
- The two yellow players in the red grid will start as defenders.
- Play a 4v2 in the first grid with four red offensive players and two yellow defensive players.
- The offensive players focus on early support, correct angles, good distance, and giving the player with the ball at least two passing options at all times.
- The defender's objective is to gain possession and pass to a teammate in the other grid.
- If one of the yellow defenders gain possession of the ball, they pass to a yellow teammate in the other grid.
- The two yellow defenders then join his team in the other grid and assist in maintaining possession.
- Two players from the red team enter the grid as defenders.
- The red defending players now attempt to win possession and return the ball into the other grid with their teammates.
- Continue to play 4v2 by repeating this pattern.
